ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Local startup Go-Station Inc. broke ground this month on its first electric vehicle charging station in Albuquerque.
The pilot project, which will open late this month on the south side of Winrock Town Center, marks the start of a broad plan to install a network of sites throughout New Mexico and the Southwest. The company expects to build up to 10 stations this year, said Go-Station founder and Chairman Stuart Rose.
“We’re starting in New Mexico and spreading outward from here,” Rose said. “Next year, we expect to build another 30 stations.”
Rose, a serial entrepreneur who founded the Bioscience Center in Uptown Albuquerque and the FatPipe ABQ co-working space Downtown, launched Go-Station about two years ago. The company generally operated in stealth mode while it built new software to help maximize charging speeds with state-of-the-art DC technology for electric cars and plug-in hybrids at Go-Station sites.
